FAQ

Do I have to pay for parking?

There is free parking at the Microsoft Conference Center please enter off of NE 40th St and then drive down 163rd Ave NE. for parking garage entrance. When you park in the garage take the elevator up to the lobby.

Is lunch provided?

Lunch is provided to all guests. Please note that if you have a specific allergy (nut, soy, or gluten) you are able to bring your own lunch. While the meal service does have gluten free options they cannot guarantee that these items haven't been contaminated by gluten. Please note in the RSVP if you will be needing a specific lunch (Vegan, Gluten Free, Nut Free) so that we can make sure we have enough.

Will there be exhibitors?

The Kids Zone is full- is there a waiting list?

Please sign up for a wait list spot for your child. If a spot opens up the next family in line will be offered the spot automatically through Eventbrite.

Are there activites for my child or teen?

Yes, there is a T1D Teen Time session for T1D Teens only and a Kids Zone. Both are hosted by T1D groups and will have medical staff. We will send follow up information to all parents in October with more information about these two programs and the expectations.
